Voting is an important civic duty, and everyone deserves the right, even if it means officials have to  set up a special polling station for one man in the remote forest.

A team of election officials in Gujarat, India literally went the extra mile (almost 45 miles through the jungle, in fact) to set up a polling station for one 69-year-old holy man, Bharatdas Darshandas. Bharatdas has lived alone in the remote forests of the Gir wildlife sanctuary for two decades.

Bharatdas looks over the Shiva Temple at the sanctuary, which is home to 600 Asiatic lions – a large percentage of the remaining population.

Despite his living situation, Bharatdas hasn’t missed a single election since 2002. In the past, he had to walk almost a kilometer to get to a polling station, The Express Tribune reports.

But thanks to the new polling station that election officials set up for Bharatdas, he won’t have to travel to vote anymore. They can count on at least one region to have a 100% voter turnout!

“The fact that the government is taking so much effort to ensure the casting of one vote speaks to the importance of each and every vote,” Bharatdas told reporters.

“Just the way voting is 100 percent in Banej, there should be 100 percent voting everywhere.”

The general election in India began on April 11 and will end on May 19, 2019.
